    Mas,
    Understanding that all mechanical devices can fail.
    And that ammo, mags, lubrication and shooting technique
    can have a profound affect on reliability.

    Is there a SD gun, or short list of guns,
    that have exhibited extreme reliability
    ("Mean time between failures") beyond all others?

    Thanks from the man of a thousand questions,
    Barth

    Long term reliability and frequency of repair requires tens of thousands of rounds downrange, in monitored test samples. Of the very few guns which have been tested that intensively,two that stand out for extraordinarily high reliability are the Glock 17 and the Beretta 92.

    best,
    Mas
